Yesterday, in a disagreement over immigration with Tomi Lahren, Matthew Dowd claimed more Americans were killed in Las Vegas last Monday than the total number killed by ‘radical Islam’ in the last 10 years.
Don’cha love how they always leave out 9/11?
Even then, Dowd was still wrong.
More Americans were killed in Las Vegas in one night than have been killed by radical islam in last ten years.

Clearly Dowd’s tweet was IMPRESSIVELY wrong. Perhaps he missed Orlando, Boston and San Bernardino?
It was so wrong in fact that he later tried to fix the tweet …
Here is what i should have said to be clear: more Americans were casualties in Vegas than Americans were casualties by Islam in last 10 yrs.

49 killed in Orlando in 2016
14 killed in San Bernardino in 2015
There goes that talking point. https://t.co/sjKjMBPTre

This tweet went over like a ton of bricks, way to go, Matthew.
Are you drunk? Still hopelessly & cluelessly WRONG. Yikes.

Super duper wrong.
In fact, Dowd was so wrong he went full-circle to being right and then blasted over to being wrong again.
Just stop while you're… behind. Lmao

Now, citation please. Since you lied the first time, why do you think I would believe you without proof?

Doesn't sound any less ridiculous, still wrong

Here's what you should've said to be clear: I'm a shill for radical Islam & an idiot.

It certainly would have simplified it.
